Subject [users@httpd] mod_extract_forwarded or mod_rpaf for Apache 2.2/2.4?
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2012 21:57:43 GMT

is there any module like mod_extract_forwarded or mod_rpaf available for 
Apache 2.2 or Apache 2.4?

These modules change the value of REMOTE_ADDR to the original client IP 
address behind a proxy request, that is given by the X-Forwarded-for 
header - only if the request comes from trusted hosts of course. It 
makes rewriting scripts to check for both REMOTE_ADDR and 
X-Forwarded-For head obsolete and means you can continue to use 
.htaccess access permissions (Allow and Deny from).

Kind regards
